Mt. Lyell is the highest mountain in Yosemite and can only be reached with considerable energy and sacrifice. Lyell’s ice field, whose foundation is a glacier, represents the subtle juxtaposition of stability and change. The peak is named after Sir Charles Lyell, a geologist and significant contributor to Charles Darwin’s theories on evolution, including that the Earth was shaped by the same processes still in operation today.
Lyell is an apt name for our Firm. Achieving financial independence requires patience, determination and stamina. And it requires a guide that can help every step of the way as life, needs and objectives evolve. Lyell provides financial counsel and proactive investment management, so our clients can climb as far and as high as they aspire.
